AAA says certain ethanol
fuel can damage cars, asks
EPA to remove from pumps

Human Events, by Audrey Hudson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/30/2012 2:31:34 PM

The recently approved use of E15 fuel made from blending gasoline and ethanol could damage vehicles and void warranties says the American Automobile Association (AAA), which is urging the federal government to ban it from the market. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved the fuel earlier this summer, but AAA says only five percent of vehicles on the road are approved by the manufacturers to use the special blend they say causes significant problems such as accelerated engine wear and failure, fuel-system damage and false “check engine” warning lights.

They don´t care! Nothing will stop these out of control Marxists from following their radical, destructive ideology.

EPA does not care about harm to engines. The crappy Ethanol they foisted on us as gasoline cost me $3,000 in boat motor repairs. Now we have a few stations that sell non-Ethanol fuel but it is expensive.

If by "leftists" you mean the corn lobby, well then I guess farmer Brown is a commie. Not that I have any love for the EPA -- far from it -- but pandering to the grain belt to curry favor and gain votes is something that most politicians seem eager to do.

The point is, #3, we should be allowed to easily buy non-Ethanol fuel without paying a premium for it. The gubmint ala EPA is scamming us.

#1 is absolutely correct. You wouldn´t believe how many boats, small engines, and older cars have been trashed due to this crap. And, although you might find ethanol free gas in some areas, it´s like finding a needle in a haystack. We have ONE station that sells it in our area and, as #1 says, it runs around 15 cents more per gallon. This nation is rapidly becoming a joke...and the joke´s on us.

15 cents is a bargain, we 30 cents a gallon extra for it although that is cheaper than a new or rebuilt engine.

What is short-sighted is that once engines are damaged by increased ethanol useage they get poor mileage and end up burning more petroleum than before.

Rural living requires that I have:

chain saw
riding mower
walk-behind mower
small generator
weed whacker
Kawasaki Mule
old pickup

All of these are subject to being ruined by ethanol. (Some already have been.) Luckily, there is a good-ole-boy station less than ten miles away that sells ethanol-free gas at reasonable prices.

Smart power for the 21st century
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Lanny Davis    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/9/2014 10:46:27 PM     Post Reply
By the turn of the 21st century, it was clear that a new approach to the use of American power to protect our national interests and values was necessary. At the risk of some over-simplification, by the end of former President George W. Bush’s second term, essentially two lines of thinking had emerged. On the right was a preference for the use of “hard power” — the use of military force and intervention to protect U.S. interests. On the left was a growing bias against military intervention of any kind and in favor of “soft power” — economic aid and

Conservatives are increasingly targeting House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, arguing that he has abandoned conservative principles and protesting his planned meeting with moderate and liberal Republicans. Mr. Cantor, who just a few years ago was seen as a champion for conservatives in the House and a possible candidate to replace House Speaker John A. Boehner, now is viewed with suspicion, said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, California Republican.“I think that Boehner can survive the discontent that the tea party and the more conservative element of the Republican Party has, but I don’t think that is true of Cantor,” Mr. Rohrabacher told The

A federal court Wednesday ordered the University of North Carolina-Wilmington to promote and give $50,000 in back pay to a conservative professor in what is described as a landmark anti-discrimination case. The restitution was ordered three weeks after a jury found the university guilty of retaliating against criminology professor Mike Adams, a popular conservative columnist on Townhall.com, after denying him a promotion to full professor in 2006. “This ruling sends a message to public universities: Academic freedom isn’t just for the Left, it’s a constitutional right for all professors — even Christian conservatives,” said David French, senior counsel at the conservative American

President Obama will speak next month at a gala celebrating the 20th anniversary of a Holocaust history foundation established by director Steven Spielberg. The USC Shoah Foundation, created by Spielberg after he completed the film "Schindler´s List," will honor Obama with its Ambassador to Humanity Award at an event in Los Angeles on May 7. “President Obama´s commitment to democracy and human rights has long been felt,” Spielberg said in a statement. “As a constitutional scholar and as president, his interest in expanding justice and opportunity and all is remarkably evident.” The Shoah Foundation collects and preserves video testimonies of

   

 



 
Lewis: Immigration reform
top civil rights issue

Immigration reform is one of the most pressing civil rights issues of the modern era, Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) said on Wednesday. Lewis, a civil rights icon and the only surviving speaker from the 1963 March on Washington, said Congress needs to pass reform — and that the American public must pressure it to do so. "The most pressing need for young people and for older Americans, for all of us, is to move with all deliberate speed to create a truly multicultural, multiracial democratic society. It doesn´t make sense ... to have millions and millions of people living in

It was Iowa Muslim day at the Iowa Capitol on Monday with Muslims sharing pastries and other ethnic foods in the Rotunda while providing information about their faith and work in Iowa. Gov. Terry Branstad signed a proclamation for Muslim Recognition Day in Iowa, something the Republican chief executive first did in 1992 during his previous tenure as governor. About 50 Iowa Muslims joined him in the governor´s formal office and applauded during a signing ceremony. The Muslims who gathered at the Capitol included native-born Iowans, and Muslims who have immigrated to Iowa from Bosnia, Somalia, Sudan, Iraq, Egypt and

Drivel, drivel, toil and snivel… Two months ago, I predicted that Jeb Bush would be the Republican nominee for president in 2016. The case was simple. With Chris Christie’s nascent presidential campaign fatally imploding and the rest of the GOP field too weak to stop the Hillary Clinton juggernaut, a panicked Republican establishment was bound to turn to a known, safe, and relatively centrist quantity to serve as its standard bearer. There are many more words in the article but that first paragraph was all that he really wanted to say: “Real conservative candidates weak, Hillary JUGGERNAUT!” “Juggernaut” in this

Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan
developing Obamacare alternative
Washington Examiner, by David M. Drucker    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/9/2014 8:49:07 PM     Post Reply
Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Paul Ryan are collaborating on an Obamacare alternative and could announce the proposal as early as this month, according to Republican sources. Both Republicans have been regularly engaged in pushing legislation on major issues — and both have made it a habit to form cross-chamber partnerships to further those endeavors. But this particular partnership is notable given the high-profile nature of health care reform and that Rubio, Florida´s junior senator, and Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman from Wisconsin, are both considered possible contenders for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

Argh: Cat Stevens Allowed To Enter

It’s bad enough that Cat Stevens — a.k.a. Muslim weirdo Yusuf Islam — will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Thursday night. (Don’t blame me — I tried to stop it…) But I was hoping he’d at least be banned from entering America, based on his habit of wishing aloud for the murder of Salman Rushdie and such. No luck there, either. Stevens performed on Jimmy Fallon’s show last night, so we know he’s in the country. I can only wish that fellow inductee Gene Simmons of KISS — being Jewish and all — will

Jimmy Carter: U.S. Shouldn’t Bomb Iran

Former President Jimmy Carter joined MSNBC’s Chris Matthews for an interview on Hardball Wednesday and made some news by saying he does not think the United States should bomb Iran even if they were to succeed in building an operational nuclear weapon. This statement differs not only from recent comments made by former Vice President Dick Cheney but also from the stated position of President Barack Obama. “I never have felt that Israel had a capability militarily to go 1,200 miles or more and bomb Iran effectively and then return back to Israel,” said of Cheney’s suggestion that Israel could

Senate insiders say that senior Treasury Department officials have been lying for years about their backroom efforts to oppose and dismantle Iran sanctions legislation that ultimately forced Tehran to the bargaining table over its illicit nuclear program. Top officials in the Treasury and State Departments are said to have staunchly opposed the 2011 passage of the sanctions legislation authored by Sens. Bob Menendez (D., N.J.) and Mark Kirk (R., Ill.), and even worked to dismantle key pieces of the bill after it was passed by the Senate in a 100-0 vote, according to senior Senate insiders who worked on the

House Ways and Means Committee Republicans aren´t ruling out the use of the chamber´s "inherent contempt" authority if Attorney General Eric Holder refuses to act on the panel´s accusations against former IRS official Lois Lerner. The committee voted Wednesday to seek an investigation of whether Lerner violated federal law by using her power to ensure Right-leaning groups were targeted for extra scrutiny by the agency, giving misleading information during a probe of the matter by the Treasury Department´s inspector general and using her personal email to conduct official business, which could have resulted in the disclosure of confidential taxpayer information.

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
